Used on of the boxes this weekend for a workshop. Like the beveled channels... but I will probably wear out the tabs quickly, so might have to tape them to keep them strong.
Great for wet or dry canvas or panels
from Hiram, GA
Sturdy, inexpensive boxes for carrying wet or dry canvases. Also for panels. The boxes fold together easily and there are styrofoam supports to fit into each end to hold either 3/4 inch thick canvases or thinner panels. Two stretched canvases can be loaded, or four panels. You put the panels in back to back in the slots.The styrofoam supports have a piece of double faced tape on the back to hold them in place. If they are permanently installed, though, you can't fold the box back up. I think I'll not use the tape in most situations from now on.I wish these were available in larger sizes!

I paint plein air through the summer into fall and have always struggled with a wet painting - where to put it for the trip home. These boxes are the answer. I bought two sizes and am very pleased. If you are careful with them, they will last through many trips. They hold the paintings secure. You can't beat the price.

I use this all of the time. Assembly was easy and it is light weight. The styrofoam inserts hold the canvas in place while the box protects it from the elements. I have never had a smeared or damaged canvas when using these carriers. On the downside though, one of the latching tabs fell off the second time I used it. I have reinforced all the seams and the bottom and I think I will put contact paper on the sides in order to make it water repellent since I carry it about in all kinds of weather. I also bought styrofoam that I cut to fit so that I could use the same box for different size canvases; works great. I paint in oils in three different studios in Mn, so these boxes end up getting lots of use and have been thoughly tested by the weather.
from Henderson, NV
Lightweight, cheap, easy to use, effective. What's not too love? They are made out of cardboard, so need a bit of reinforcing (got duct tape?) where the top is perforated so it will fold. Not a big deal. For the price these are amazing. Wish they made larger sizes.
A Great Buy!
This is a great deal if you plan to take a painting trip or class and want to transport wet oils simply and cheaply. They are also easy to breakdown and store for another time.

This product is the best for transporting your wet canvas! It arrives flat and assembles easily. One great feature of this is that the inside has supports that you can attach to the inside ends permanently or not. In other words if you don't attach them permanently you can remove them when not in use for flat storage. Also, I really like how light but durable these boxes are!!
